Jackson started wrestling when he was 9 years old. Greg Hatcher first introduced him to the sport and Pat Smith has become his wrestling coach. The Midwest Army National Tournament is a summer tournament held each year in Bloomington, IL. This year Jackson weighed in at 93lbs. There were 12 wrestlers in his bracket. After winning three matches, he was wrestling in the finals for first place. Three overtimes later, he became the Champion!
A combination of D1’s Strength training and Pat Smith’s wrestling techniques are what has allowed Jackson to become the athlete he is today.
